Nature remains the best ally human societies have in tackling climate change. Nature based solutions are an essential and privileged lever for adapting to a changing climate.

This new exhibition, held in conjunction with the French mayors’ and local governments exhibition, is organised in partnership with the AMF (French Mayors’ Association), Les Eco Maires (The “Green” Mayors’ association) and the Union Professionnelle du Génie écologique (The Professional Association of Ecological Engineering). Ecological Engineering stands as a key player providing scientific and technical expertise to all economic activities in order to repair, protect or restore life and nature capacities to damaged environments and habitats.
